East Texas not immune to sex trafficking, conference under way
The Women's Center of East Texas is hosting a conference exploring the exploitation of youth and young adults. Brooke Wyatt, the center's nonresidential projects director, says Houston is a major hub for trafficking and that spills over into East Texas and Louisiana. She says three youth were recently rescued in the Longview area. The conference is titled "The Exploitation of Our Society." It's set for Friday, Aug. 3, at Fellowship Bible Church in Longview.
